The following statement is being mass distributed in the US Congress, and internationally. It is now
publicly known that US officials were previously informed of the severe security danger in Benghazi days before the sophisticated, pre-planned assault which resulted in the murder of the US Ambassador. Nothing was done, as the same British/Saudi/Wahabi nexus which ran the first 9/11 terrorist attack launched this second 9/11 assault, aimed at driving the US into yet another insane war in the Mideast - this time threatening global thermonuclear war with Russia and China. Please circulate this call to arms to stop Obama and his British mentors. Mike Billington
IMPEACH OBAMA FOR CRIMINAL COMPLICITY
IN MURDER OF U.S. AMBASSADOR
Lyndon LaRouche today demanded that Congress remain
in session to immediately convene impeachment proceedings in
the House of Representatives against President Barack Obama for
his criminal complicity in the Sept. 11, 2012 attack on the U.S.
consulate in Benghazi, Libya, in which Ambassador Chris Stevens
and three other U.S. officials were killed.
“President Obama was complicit before the fact in the
events that lead to the killing of four valuable American diplomats.
There is sufficient evidence to warrant immediate impeachment
preceding,” LaRouche declared this afternoon. “U.S.
officials were repeatedly warned, in the weeks preceding the
911 Benghazi attacks, that there was a breakdown of security in
the city. The State Department issued a travel alert to all Americans,
urging them to stay out of Libya. All of the evidence was
there to impose strict security measures. Yet, nothing was done.
That failure is on the President’s plate.”
LaRouche spelled out three levels of Obama complicity in
the killing of Ambassador Stevens and the other officials.
First, from the first months of his presidency, Obama has
joined in the George W. Bush/Dick Cheney coverup of the direct
role of the Saudi Monarchy in the original Sept. 11, 2001 attacks.
Obama met with the 911 families in the White House in February
2009 and was explicitly asked to declassify the 28-page chapter
from the Joint Congressional 911 inquiry that detailed the role of
then-Saudi Ambassador to the United States, Prince Bandar bin-
Sultan, in the financing of the 911 hijackers. Obama not only refused
to release the document. He ordered the Solicitor General
of the United States to intervene into a Federal law suit on the
Saudi Monarchy’s complicity in 911 to secure sovereign immunity
for the Kingdom, thus deepening the coverup.
The classified chapter from the Joint Congressional report,
if released to the public, would not only show the Bandar complicity
in the financing of the 911 attacks. It would expose the larger
issue of the British-Saudi hand behind the global Jihadi terror
apparatus, via the Al Yamamah offshore slush-fund, established
in 1985 by Bandar and then-British Prime Minister Margaret
Thatcher. The Al Yamamah oil-for-weapons barter deal created a
massive offshore secret fund, used to promote terrorist insurgencies,
coups and assassinations over the past three decades. During
the period that he was providing cash to the 911 hijackers via
two Saudi intelligence officiers, Prince Bandar received at least
$2 billion from the Al Yamamah funds, that went into the Saudi
embassy accounts at Riggs National Bank and HSBC.
President Obama is guilty of covering up the crimes of the
original 911 attack, thus facilitating the 2012 911 attack, which
resulted in the four deaths in Benghazi this past week.
Second, President Obama’s unconstitutional war in Libya
during 2011, ending with the assassination of Muammar Qaddafi,
unleashed a wave of Anglo-Saudi sponsored neo-Salafi terrorism
that has spread from Libya to other parts of Africa and into Syria.
President Obama’s refusal to go to Congress for authorization
to go to war in Libya was an impeachable crime in itself. Under
Article I, Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution, only the Congress
has the authority to bring the country to war--unless the U.S. has
been attacked or is facing imminent attack. President Obama’s
actions in Libya constituted “high crimes and misdemeanors” under
Article II, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution.
Third, President Obama showed reckless disregard for the
lives of American personnel in Libya by failing to take action to
properly secure U.S. personnel and facilities, in the face of repeated
warnings of grave security threats, specifically in Benghazi.
There is already compelling evidence that the attack on the
U.S. consulate on Sept. 11, 2012, which resulted in the deaths of
Ambassador Stevens and the three others, was carried out by an
offshoot of Al Qaeda, Ansar al-Sharia. The leader of the group,
Sufyan bin-Qumu, was actually arrested by Pakistani police soon
after the original Sept. 11, 2001 attacks on New York and the Pentagon
because of his affiliations with Al Qaeda. Bin-Qumu was
detained at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba from 2002 until Sept. 2007,
when he was returned to Libya and eventually released from
prison. Libyan officials have been warning U.S. counterparts for
months that the Benghazi area was a hotbed of Jihadi violence,
to the point that local security agencies were heavily penetrated
and public safety was disintegrating. According to one senior U.S.
intelligence source, Ansar al-Sharia had directly penetrated the
Benghazi regional public safety committee, and had full access to
information on U.S. personnel and facilities, including a U.S. safehouse
which was also attacked on Sept. 11, 2012.
Despite all of these warnings, there were no U.S. Marines
dispatched to secure the Benghazi consulate until after the attacks
Lyndon LaRouche concluded: “Just because the U.S. media
has decided to give President Obama a free hand to continue with
his unconstitutional and murderous activities does not mean
that the U.S. Congress can also let him off the hook. Between his
extra-judicial drone assassination program throughout the Muslim
world, his coverup of the Anglo-Saudi hand behind both the
2001 and 2012 911 attacks, and his callous disregard for the lives
of American diplomats, every American citizen is in danger every
day that President Obama remains in office.
“The events of Sept. 11, 2012 cannot be swept under the
rug. Crimes have been committed, American diplomats have been
killed, and the President must be held fully accountable for his
miserable failure to execute his Constitutional responsibilities.
The only proper venue is an immediate impeachment proceeding
in the U.S. House of Representatives.”
